Preview for Dream11 Fantasy
Zimbabwe Under-19s and Scotland Under-19s have lost their first two matches so far and will be playing their final group game on Saturday. Both the sides have been relegated to the Plate group of the World Cup now and will contest for a place in that group. While Zimbabwe colts put up a fight against Pakistan in the 295-run chase, Scotland were hammered in both their games.
They lost both their matches by seven wickets against Pakistan and Bangladesh. Scotland’s batting has been a major problem for them in this tournament so far as they are yet to cross the 100-run mark. The team is struggling to cope with the conditions big time and got bowled out on 75 and 89 batting first. They will hope to put up an improved show in this game.
Well, like Friday, the rain is likely to play spoilsport during the match. It will be cloudy for the whole day in Potchefstroom and the start of the match also might get delayed as thunderstorms are predicted at 8 AM local time. However, the sun is expected to come out around 2-3 PM and we might possibly witness a shortened game.
The Witrand Cricket Field has hosted two matches in the tournament so far and it seems to be a decent wicket. However, overhead conditions will play a crucial role as the team winning the toss is expected to bowl first to churn out early wickets.
Average first innings score: 192 (Two matches played at the venue in this World Cup)
Record of the chasing teams: Won – 1; Lost – 1
